How did the culture begin?
Louisiana Creole is a French Creole language spoken by the mixed Louisiana Creole people of the state of Louisiana. The language consists of elements of French, Native American, Spanish, and West African roots.
Louisiana Creole refers to Americans of various racial descent who are descended from the Colonial French settlers of Louisiana known as French Creole, in addition to African Americans, and Native Americans  before it became part of the United States in 1803 with the Louisiana Purchase with claim to the Creole culture and Creole cuisine. Unlike many other ethnic groups in the United States, Creoles did not migrate from a native country. The commonly accepted definition today is for the community whose members are a mixture of mainly French, African American, and Native-American heritage. There is general agreement that the term "Creole" derives from the Portuguese word crioulo, which means a slave born in the master’s household. This means creoles are generally decendents of slaves. Some may not have each ethnic heritage, and some may have additional ancestries.
This album is the story of a historical Louisiana musician in the making. Cedric Watson returned to his roots in Louisiana after growing up in Sealy, Texas so he could develop his Creole music in the towns and pastures where his predecessors once played. He is currently co-frontman of Lafayettes acclaimed Pine Leaf Boys (PLBs), whose recent Grammy nomination has ensured them a place in the Louisiana culture history books.
In his debut solo release, Cedric channels the talents of his influences, such as Bois Sec Ardoin and Canray Fontenot, but proves his chops as a writer and composer with the majority of the songs on the album either his own creations and/or arrangements. Cedric is also a multi-instrumentalist, as any PLBs fan can tell you, and he switches frequently between fiddle and accordion, at live shows and on this album. Being well-versed in the history of the music he plays, Cedric creates music with strong Creole roots, and branches out appropriately and deliberately into Cajun and Zydeco sounds. As a result, some tracks on this album are instant classics, while others are refreshingly new and different.

Georgia has just been named in the top 10 for one of the unhealthiest states in the nation. Georgia is ranked No. 6 on the list following just Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Mississippi. These rankings were done judging each state on twenty-one different factors ranging from cancer rates to obesity. Georgia has recently leaped into the top ten in the past ten years, with Georgia being 24 sports higher at No. 30 less than ten years ago. Georgia has been ranked fourth in the number new AIDS cases per year, and firth for the number of sexually transmitted diseases. Just these two new statistics it’s enough to send anyone living in the Peach State packing. Besides the spread of STD’s one of the main reasons why people living in the Peach State are considered some of the most unhealthy in the country is because of an unhealthy lifestyle as well as a high-fat diet which is putting a lot of people down south at risk.
High-fat diets are known to have levels much higher than the levels advised by the American Heart Association, which can over time, cause cardiac or heart problems. Problems like there are very serious and can lead to very serious surgeries such as heart bypass surgery. For people who are going to continue to state on their high-fat diets, and even for people who don’t that live in Georgia, it is very important for them to have some type of Georgia Health Insurance. Georgia being one of the most unhealthy states in the nation gives good reason for residents to have a good Georgia Health Insurance plan especially a plan which include well-visit check ups as well as any type of testing or screening that may be important to screen for such serious ailments such as heart disease.
Here few ways that nutritionists recommend that residents of Georgia can change their lifestyle in order to become more healthy. One of the easiest ways is to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your life. Fruits and vegetables are relatively inexpensive and they are also very good for you, when purchasing fruits and vegetables remember that the darker the fruit or vegetable, the better it will be for you. This is because the darker it is the more nutrients it will hold. Also, eating raw vegetables such as tomato, or lettuce is better for you than cooking them because they will retain all of the nutrients they are grown with, opposed to cooking or frying them which may lead to decrease in amount of nutrients.
Another way that residents of Georgia can become more healthy and safe is by purchasing Georgia health insurance. There are more than 45 million people across the country with health insurance, and many of those people are located in Georgia. Having some type of Georgia Health Insurance is imperative for residents to live a happy and stress-free lifestyle.

If I travel back and forth between 2 states do I need to change my driver license to that state every time?
I would hate to do that. I live in California but I’m temporarily in Louisiana to work with my aunt. I want to know if that would affect me trying to get an apartment in Louisiana or anything like that. But I do travel back and forth & would hate to have to change my license every time.
That is a tough situation. You are supposed to get a Louisiana license within 30 days of moving there. if you do not, and get stopped for any reason, you would have a problem. California is worse…they say you must get a CA license within 10 days of moving there! I don’t see any way around this. then there is the issue of your car insurance. They need to know too.
Edit: Just saw other answer and she has a good thought. If you maintain a home in CA all the time, then you are a CA resident. But, i was concerned that Louisiana would consider you a resident since you spoke of getting an apartment there. Once you do that, they may consider you a resident.
I am going to attempt to cook a duck, hen, and sausage gumbo for the first time and I’m not really sure how to do it. I’ve been looking for recipes online but all of them include how to make the roux from scratch. I just wanted to use Kary’s Dark Roux. Can anyone tell me how to make the gumbo with the Kary’s roux? Thanks.
All you have to do is put your jar roux in the pan first and start with you ingredients. Usually I make it from scratch, but you can put it in the pan and add the onions, bell pepper, celery and garlic. Sauté until the onions become translucent and the vegetables are tender. Usually we have beef cubes in ours to add flavor. But to answer your question just start out with it in the pan and heat it and go from there.
The french culture has an impact on different parts of North America, such as the province of Quebec…?
The french culture has an impact on different parts of North America, such as the province of Quebec and the state of Louisiana. I need help of how to explain this. Highly appreciated
I know that in Quebec they got a law passed to preserve the French Language in 1997. In Quebec they have fought to keep their french identity ever since 1608.
